After winning the 2017 Squash Open D’Italia, Egyptian champion Youssef Ibrahim won his first Professional Squash Association (PSA) title.

He beat France’s Victor Crouin—seeded eighth in the championship—in the first round; Spain’s Bernat Jaume— seeded second—in the quarterfinals; and England’s Patrick Rooney—seeded third—in the semifinals.

The big surprise was the Pharaoh defeating France’s Baptiste Masotti, as the French player was seeded first in the championship.

Youssef snatched victory in the final after defeating his rival 3-1 (11-8, 7-11, 11-7, 11-8).
